After bombing most of my 2014 goals, I went back to the drawing board and decided to drastically simplify my goals for this year and focus on those that would really be soul-filling for myself and encourage me to really invest in my marriage and children.
I spent a few weeks considering what worked and what didn’t work and what I wanted my priorities to be in 2015. After contemplating this, I wrote out a rough draft of my goals and then went over them with Jesse last week and he helped me refine and tweak them.
I’ve been sitting on my finalized goal list for a week and I have to tell you that I’m so excited about these goals for 2015!
They feel challenging but still realistic and this is making me all inspired and motivated — instead of feeling like I’d set goals that were so lofty inspiring and motivating.
Without further ado, here’s my finalized list (and yes, some of you are going to be very excited to see that I’ve included financial goals again!):
My 12 Goals for 2015
- Read 1 book per month on marriage.
- Write at least 1 love note to Jesse each week.
- Read at least 1 book aloud to the kids per month.
- Write 1 love note to each child every month.
- Complete all She Reads Truth 2015 Bible Studies + memory work.
- Read 1 fiction book per month.
- Hire a local personal assistant.
- Launch 2 courses (we’re planning one for spring and one for fall — stay tuned!)
- Launch our new product line (slated to soft launch in the summer).
- Release my third book (slated to come out November 2015).
- Increase last year’s overall giving totals by 10% in 2015.
- Finish funding our Rental House #3 Savings Account (we’re beginning the year at 35% funded).
So there you have it! I’ll post updates at the beginning of each month to let you know the progress I made in the previous month.
